"Wouldn't it be great if, every once in a while, we did mathematics simply because it was fun or beautiful, or because it excited the mind?"
Math is logical, functional and just ... awesome. Mathemagician Arthur Benjamin explores hidden properties of that weird and wonderful set of numbers, the Fibonacci series. (And reminds you that mathematics can be inspiring, too!)

Here is a great exercise that works out your glutes, hamstrings and abs.  When all of these muscles are weak, you may have a tendency to tilt your pelvis forwards, as these muscles help to tilt your pelvis backwards.  When your pelvis is tilted forwards, your upper legs can twist inwards, you can go into a knock-kneed position and you will also flatten out your feet.  Doing all of these things too much can lead to muscle and/or ligament injuries.  Also, when you are done working out these muscles, be sure to stretch!  Because we have a tendency to slouch back in our chairs and our hamstrings tilt our pelvis backwards, when our hamstrings are tight, they tilt our pelvis backwards even more and drag the spine along with it, potentially leading to a low back injury.

I look forward to seeing your work!  I'd love to see more videos that share your thoughts on various aspects of teaching.  Your learning cycle video change dmy teaching and gave clarity to a number of ideas I have had bouncing around in my head.  Would love to hear your take on tpics liek the role of homework, useful forms of assessment and alternative assessments, standardized testing and the like.

Good luck and enjoy.

+Wil Wheaton +Geek & Sundry Can you play Tsuro of the Seas without the Sea Monsters?  I want to buy it after seeing it on Tabletop, but think this version might be good to have instead because it adds some different elements to the game.  I would like to play it without the addition too.  I just want confirmation that you can play it both ways.

Watch-Worthy Google Classroom Tutorial on Google Rocks! Hawaii

Thank you, +Michael Fricano II 
We celebrated our 50th episode of Google Rocks! Hawaii last week with Google headbands! So much fun! We also did some serious learning about Google Classroom. Regular panelist and authorized Google Education Trainer +Michael Fricano II gave us a concise and clear overview of Google Classroom.

Love this design.  Going to do a similar project with my Biology class and will use this as an example.  Nicely done.

This was my first game of #carcassone . Is this normal to have empty spaces in the middle of the board or did I do something wrong? +Wil Wheaton

Oh and my four year old crushed me.

OK, +Wil Wheaton, I could have used a bit of help here! It was my me, my 4 year old son and my wife.

The 4 year old won.

Great game.
